-powered assault rifle. hundreds of students and others took to the streets of santa rosa earlier this week to protest the death of this popular eighth gradary. ma rowa teresa kumar is an msnbc contributor. this incident has caused a lot of outrage. there have been rallies, demonstrations, people holding up signs saying andy lopez did not have to die. also jail all racist killer cops. very strong language here. explain what we know about the facts of all this and how this case has now galvanized the community. >> good morning, thomas. thanks for doing this segment. this is something that's actually quite personal because i grew up in santa rosa in the community. sadly this is the third incident in less than eight years by a shooting of a teen victim by a police officer. and what we're seeing right now is the fact that you have young people, middle schoolers and high schoolers galvanizing, protesting in the streets, organizing. not your usual suspects, not the community leaders and church leaders but young people saying we need to have a better relationship with police officers because right
stories about it, is one of the great defenders of states rights, well, we're taking our cue from rosa parks. rosa parks was protesting against the state and local ordinance. when we heard about the incursions of the federal government, what we forget is where a lot of the oppression has happened is at the state level. you know, there was a great libertarian figure forgotten now named carl hess. he said a long time ago, i don't understand why conservatives say they want a more efficient local government. or they say they like local government better because it's more efficient. he said if you're a libertarian, you don't want efficient government. you want to be free where it matters most. and it's really at the state and local level where there has been so much oppression, so many rights withheld, so many ordinances that were unjust. it feels a little disingenuous for people to pull states rights out as a way of guaranteeing people's freedoms. >> right. i want to just pull something out that actually you wrote, sam. i think particularly in the age of president obama, it has -- the lang
welcomes the fbi investigation in addition to a separate joint investigation by the santa rosa police department. what would you like to see happen here? >> i think they want to find out what the real facts are. you have a kid walking and wasn't causing any particular harm. there had not been reports of police misconduct of some kind. how was he approached? how did the police approach him? did they give him an opportunity to put the weapon down, whatever it was? why did they shoot as many times as they did. i would like to know if the kid was shot in the back at all. it sounds like he turned around. very difficult to believe a young man would point a gun, a toy gun like that at a police officer. that is not to say the police could not have a reasonable good faith belief that the weapon was a real gun given the size and have a right to respond to that. what you want to do is examine me and interview all witnesses prime minister. some say the officers after the kid were shot and done, the officers continued to shoot. that is a situation of excessive force. for me as a civil rights lawye
for what's happening in santa rosa but in many communities across this country. >> fernando chavez, thank you so much for your time today. >>> time to flash back to this day in 1948 when one of the greatest upsets in presidential election history caused a serious black eye for "the chicago tribune." votes were still being counted between truman and dewey. the paper published an early edition with the headline "dewey defeats truman ". but truman triumphed defeating dewey with just over 2 million votes. fast-forward, 28 years, jimmy carter was elected on this day 1976, becoming the first u.s. president from the deep south since the civil war. and in 2010, republicans took back the house in mid-term. largely seen as a referendum on president obama's just-passed health care reform law. >> this is something that i think every president needs to go through. i'm not recommending for every future president that they take a shellacking like i did last night. awarded j.d. power's most appealing midsize car, two years in a row. and right now you can drive one home for practically just your signature
